You do not have to become a Premium Service or Enterprise Subscription user to use the App or Services. However, if you are not a Premium Service or Enterprise Subscription user, you may be precluded from using certain portions, components, content, features, or resources of our App and/or Services.

Applicable taxes, and other charges and fees incurred in order to access the App and Services may also apply.
